Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 5 hrs
Serves: 4


  • 95g jar chipotle chilli and smoked paprika paste 
  • 1 tsp oregano 
  • 1 tsp garlic salt 
  • ¼ tsp chilli flakes 
  • 2 tbsp tomato purée 
  • 2 tbsp cider vinegar 
  • 1.4kg pork shoulder joint 
  • 60ml orange juice 

To serve 

  • 1 red onion, thinly sliced 
  • 1 lime, juiced 
  • 10 pack mini plain tortilla wraps 
  • ½ iceberg lettuce, shredded 
  • 8g coriander, roughly chopped 
  • 1 red chilli, finely sliced 


Step 1: In a bowl, mix together chipotle paste, oregano, garlic salt, chilli flakes, tomato purée, and cider vinegar. Season and stir well.

Step 2:
Pour the marinade over the pork, making sure to cover all sides. Place the pork in the slow cooker and pour in the orange juice. Put the lid on and cook on high for 5 hours.

Step 3: In the meantime, prepare the pickled onions. Place the red onion in a bowl, cover with boiling water, and let sit for 15 minutes. Drain the onions, return them to the bowl, and add salt and lime juice. Stir well and let pickle for another 15 minutes. Watch them turn a vibrant pink colour!

Step 4: Towards the end of the cooking time for the pork, preheat the oven to gas 1, 140°C, 120°C fan. Wrap the tortillas in foil and heat in the oven for 6-8 minutes.

Step 5: Remove the lid from the slow cooker and pull out any bones from the pork. Spoon out any excess fat from the pot. Using two forks, shred the pork until it is all pulled apart and sitting in the flavourful juices.

Step 6: Once the tacos are warm, take them out of the oven. Fill each taco with a little lettuce, top with pulled pork, and sprinkle with some coriander and chopped red chilli.

Enjoy these mouthwatering pulled pork tacos that are packed with flavour and perfect for any occasion!
